first off, i mean no harm or disrespect to your modified shelbys. i have been off this forum for about 4 years now, i had kids and they are now in pre-school and i finally have time to have fun with my car again. a buddy of mine told me about a blue convertible at golf mill ford for 43K. i went there and since the blue one was in the showroom i got to testdrive a red hardtop. here is the big shocker, it just didnt feel much faster than my 99 vert. mine is modded and i ran a 12.9 in it. with the 200 extra horse i thought i would have a sh!teating grin on my face after i got out but i was just really let down. at first i figured it was just the quiter exhaust but i brought it up to redline a few times and ehh. what does this thing run stock in the 1/4? 13's. for the money i would have to spend to get one and THEN have to mod it...in my case it just doesnt make sense. like i said i have been out of the loop for a few years, are these as easy to mod as the 03's and do you get the same results? i know this car shines on the twistys but i mostly ran the 1/4 and had a lil fun on the street cutting corners. i think it is time to build up the engine and get a SC on mine. did any of you guys feel the same way after you drove it for the first time?
